Nutra-C®, a unique form of non-acidic Vitamin C ingredient, is made using a specific water-based manufacturing process which results in a pH neutral product that contains naturally occurring Vitamin C metabolites. These metabolites activate the Vitamin C molecules making it easier for the body to transport them from cell to cell delivering numerous health benefits. Since it contains chelated minerals, mainly calcium ascorbate with special formulation, Nutra-C® is ionized completely and is 100% bio-available from the moment of consumption. From trial studies, Nutra-C® has been shown to help Vitamin C intake and increase retention of Vitamin C by cells. This new vitamin C ingredient provides much faster absorption and better retention rate.
